Islay Festival 2017: Jura & Kilchoman

01 June 2017 by

Despite the rain there was a real festival atmosphere at both Jura and Kilchoman distilleries on the sixth day of Fèis Ìle 2017. The incessant downpours failed to deter festival go-ers who descended on the island distilleries to drink, dance and pick up their own limited edition festival bottlings.

At Jura, Whyte & Mackay whisky maker Gregg Glass introduced visitors to the 2017 Tastival bottling, a no-age-statement matured in first-fill American oak with a ruby Port and further American oak finish.

Meanwhile, George Wills, sales and marketing manager at Kilchoman, met with editor Becky Paskin to discuss the Islay farm distillery’s bottling, a vatting of two 100% Islay casks – one an ex-Bourbon barrel and the other an ex-oloroso Sherry butt.
